BRUSSELS – In anticipation of a new ‘comprehensive strategy for textiles’ from the European Commission in the coming months, a collective of 65 civil society organisations have today proposed their own non-official ‘shadow strategy' which it’s hoped can serve as a guide for members of the European Parliament when implementing environmental and social protection measures.  

The group is calling on the Commission and EU governments to back its bold strategy which it believes will “kick-start a global re-design of the textile industry’s broken business model for the post-coronavirus world”.  

Representing the coalition, Sergi Corbalán, executive director of the Fair Trade Advocacy Office, said: “This ‘shadow strategy’ offers the Commission the combined expertise of 65 Civil Society Organisations who have years of experience in dealing with the various impacts of the sector. It’s not a menu from which the Commission can pick specific initiatives and leave others behind, but a comprehensive strategy in which taking action in each field reinforces the efforts put into others.”
